class is shrinking our deficits in a balanced and responsible way. and for nearly two years now, i've been fighting for such a plan, one that would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade, which would stabilize our debt and our deficit in a sustainable way for the next decade. that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt relative to the size of our economy, but it would make it manageable so it doesn't crowd out the investments we need to make people and education and jobs and science research. step by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that will save in interest payments on the debt, altogether that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made pro

in that time to clear the way for negotiations on long-term deficit reduction, to add muscle to the efforts to bring democrats to the table, they would include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on the arm and say, please do something about the debt and deficit. we're bankrupting the country. that's what the american people are looking for. and to date, politicians have both parties have been unwilling to take even a tiny step in the right direction. we've got to fix the problem. >> the senate has to pass a budget. do you believe that? >> i do. >> why has it been four years since you've done that? >> well, l

damaging to our economy. i think it would actually add to our deficit, because it will impede growth. >> reporter: another more immediate political fight for the president, confirming his pentagon nominee, chuck hagel, a republican, who got a boost on "meet the press" sunday from former republican secretary of state, colin powell, who used the occasion to take a larger, deeper shot at the gop. >> there's also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance of some parts of the party. what do i mean by that? what i mean by that is, they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? when i see a former governor say that the president is shuckin' and jivin'. that's a racial era slave term. >> reporter: now, brian, the issue of the lack of diversity in the president's second-term appointment so far came up at the press conference today, and the president simply asked for more time, defended his record of diversity in the first term and said wait until he's finished with all of his appointments. >> chuck todd on the north lawn of the white house for us tonight. chuck, thanks. >>> o

, on the books. sos that over $2 trillion in deficit reduction in two years. it doesn't get us all of the way there but largely, two thirds of the way there at least within a ten-year budget window. >> russ, what do you think? of course we are approaching this with caution. we know that there's going to be more back and forth. but in the middle of it all, we've got earnings season. and you know, already some people are saying that this anticipation of all of these cliffs, cliff after cliff, has already impacted the earnings period. what are you looking at, what are you seeing from the fourth quarter reporting season so far? it's been a big week obviously this week for financials. >> we're seeing decent performance. again, i think compliments to corporate america because they been able to grind out strong earnings growth with a relatively weak recovery. and margins remain much higher than people thought and this has helped. we are sing recovery in the rest of the world, and that has helped. it's going to be a decent year. i don't think the problem is the trajectory of the economy. i think the

face. the deficit is not the biggest problem we face. the biggest problem we face is jobs. and wages. >> for decades we've been told don't tax the upper class because the less tax they have, the better it is for the middle class. true or false? >> false. the idea of the job creators belies -- the truth about the economy is the vast middle class, everybody is aspiring to join the middle class, they are the job creators because their spending creates jobs. >> we've been sold on this for years. >> i don't know why they've been sold on this. trickle-down economics, the idea if you give more tax breaks to people at the top and companies at the top, you're going to create jobs, has been proven over and over again to be false. >> some amazing insight. what's next for robert reich? he says if the president asks, he would go back to washington. as for now he loves teaching at cal and just released his latest book called "beyond outraged.
